We Need Your Help
WantToKnow.info and PEERS Need Your Help
"You know how when you get a big pile of emails, you just want to ditch everything in the Inbox? Well, even when I feel that way, I leave email from WantToKnow alone. I mark it to read the next morning when I am fresh and in a better mood. I often learn a new perspective and a truer story and am seldom disappointed when I scan what this website focuses on. All of us who suffer from information overload have come to realize that the main purpose of WantToKnow is to relieve us of that burden by helping us to sort, saving us time and energy, while still not missing highly important things we want to know." -- Brad Blanton, Ph. D., Author of Radical Honesty
PEERS and WantToKnow.info need your help. In the last four years, the WantToKnow.info website has received 4.5 million visits and over 8.5 million page views. Our email list has grown to more than 8,000 caring subscribers from over 100 countries around the world. WantToKnow.info has played a key role in educating all kinds of people from elementary school teachers to top policy makers. We attract some amazing people who are truly making a difference in our world, yet we need your help to survive and to thrive.
We do our best not to bombard you with requests for donations, yet a few times a year I send out a message like this, as we really need your help to close our budget gap. Thanks to an incredible amount of volunteer support, PEERS, the dedicated nonprofit organization which manages WantToKnow.info and our sister websites, manages to operate on a shoestring budget of about $30,000 per year. Almost all of our funds come from the generosity of caring people like you who believe in our work and send in donations.
I first want to sincerely thank all of you who have supported us in the past. You have enabled us to grow, to thrive, and to really make a difference in our world. Whether you have donated in the past or not, I invite you to help us now in our time of need. This year, we are almost $4,000 in the red so far. I ask you to consider the value of our work both to you personally and to our world. Then ask yourself, is the work of WantToKnow.info worth the price of a good book or a good meal in a restaurant to you? If so, I encourage you to donate that amount or more to support our work. Even $10 makes a difference to us.

Another way you can support our work is through using our amazon.com link. Amazon has a great program where WantToKnow.info earns a percentage of anything you buy there without costing you anything extra. Simply by entering the amazon.com website using a link with a code in the URL identifying that we referred you, WantToKnow.info gets 4 to 8% of the sale. If you shop at amazon.com and want to support us at no extra cost to yourself, please bookmark or favorite the webpage URL below and use it any time you want to search for and purchase something on amazon.com.
As long as you start at the amazon search page at the link above, you can search for anything and add any number of items to your cart and WantToKnow will automatically receive a percentage of the total purchase price. Please note though, that you will not receive notification of this. What a great way for you to support us without spending a penny! We've already earned over $500 since we started this program last December. It's a small percentage of our budget, yet every little bit helps.
